This is some world-class bullshit

 

That was my favorite sign from Portland’s pro-women, pro-human, anti-Trump march last weekend. It was a very plain, small sign, just scribbled in some magic marker:

 

“This is some world-class bullshit”

PERFECT. Yes. This, my friend, is some world-class fucking bullshit. Ha.

 

Other wonderful slogans:
——

Be Bigger than Bigotry (sign held by a ten-year-old)
Fuck you, Cheeto Voldemort (yes)
We Shall Overcomb (this was the message on MY sign, but I read the slogan on the internet, so I can’t take credit)
I’m Not Gay as in Happy, I’m Queer as in Fuck You (awesome)

——

also, mad props to the infinity symbol sign that had nipples painted on. You get the Herb Lubalin award (nah let’s make this the Ellen Raskin award instead).

What else:

  -Not My President tees spotted around Portland.

-I just signed up for Slate Plus.Yes, I’m paying for news. It’s time to start giving money to journalists, America. In 2017, every time I click on a news link, and I run into a paywall… I’m… GASP… PAYING FOR A SUBSCRIPTION.

-Let’s end on some Big Country… to play us out. I guess maybe I’ve never posted about Stuart Adamson and Big Country before. Well, I just love Big Country. I won’t go into how much.

I had fun making the missing cat drawing by ‘protecting’ part of the paper with a second piece of paper, then painting over it. So I tried the same technique for hairy leg. Pretty good! And here’s your Buddhist illustration concept for today: The leg’s hairiness is actually best illustrated by the bit that’s not hairy.

Yes

Yes

I am still working on this project.

No

I don’t think I’ll ever get done.

Pink. Huh. I just started just this moment to appreciate the color. Maybe Pantone didn’t pick such a terrible choice in Rose Quartz for Color of the Year after all. Previously I have always felt that pink is a super uncool color, and I have resisted wearing it… but right now I can feel the paradigm plates shifting techtonically in my brain.
